Oversight Committee


The Oversight Committee meets several times per year to review the Program’s strategic objectives, vote on its activities and budget, and select the projects that receive funding. It also provides valuable feedback and mentoring to project teams. The committee is comprised of clinicians experienced in translation, business leaders accomplished in biomedical commercialization, experts in regulatory affairs and reimbursement, representatives from major biomedical firms, and local and national venture capitalists. There are currently 11 voting members and 4 non-voting ad-hoc members.
